In the four-minute segment, available in 4K ray-traced resolution, hapless author Alan Wake finds himself in the Dark Place, which has taken the form of a nightmarish version of a nighttime, rainy New York.

In one of the alleys, the hero meets a character from his own books, now-FBI agent Alex Casey, who in Alan Wake II literally looks and sounds like Max Payne, the protagonist of another Remedy duology.

Casey’s appearance is based on Remedy creative director Sam Lake, who voiced Max Payne in the first game. The FBI agent speaks in the voice of James McCaffrey, who played the hero in all three parts.

Without having time to talk to Casey (he behaves a little strangely), Wake follows his interlocutor with his eyes – an FBI agent armed with a service pistol has gone to check the alarming sounds coming from around the corner.

You can see what happened next in the video attached above. Fans greeted the new video with enthusiasm for the advanced graphics and “Max Payne” appearing in the excerpt.

Due to the recent postponement, Alan Wake II is expected to release on October 27th on PC (Epic Games Store), PS5, Xbox Series X and S. In addition to Alan Wake, there will be another protagonist in the game – an FBI agent Saga Anderson.
